Cornish skiff is restored
Boatbuilding students from Falmouth Marine School have completed the restoration of a 40-year-old Cornish rowing association skiff.
The boat is believed to have been built by Falmouth boat builder Dicky George and was rescued from decrepitude on the Isles of Scilly by boat builder, Dave Cockwell of Cockwells boatbuilders that supplied the materials for the restoration.
“The skiff was very tired and neglected when it came to us, but underneath was a beautiful boat with great lines,” explained student Bill Sharpe, who previously served 36 years in the Army. “We reinforced the structure and gave her a complete refurbishment, which revealed the beautiful slops and design.”
Programme manager at Falmouth Marine School, Jonny Mills, added: “This is one of a number of collaborative projects that we are currently undertaking with the local marine sector which helps students to gain practical work experience and is a showcase for their developing talents.”
